Waterstone's

Waterstone's or, as they like to style themselves these days, Waterstones, have a display up in their Hull branch at the moment for Westerns, called "Ride 'em cowboy".

Here we have it. East of Eden? Maybe you could argue it is a western. Part of it is certainly located in the west. The Sound and the Fury? Hmm, pity the poor Zane Grey reader picking that one up and trying to make sense of it. And behind it, upside down, is Suttree, that great western from Knoxville, Tennessee, c. 1951... Ride 'em Cornelius...

Books are commodities. Something about round pegs having to fit in square holes...
